Americans Buy Enough Guns in Last Two Months to Outfit the Entire Chinese and Indian Armies
Jim Hoft / The Gateway Pundit

Honest Americans Bought Enough Guns in November and December to Outfit the Entire Chinese and Indian Armies  —  The Obama Administration is the number one threat to the nation’s gun rights advocates. In the four years since Barack Obama was first elected president in November 2008, an estimated 67 million firearms have been purchased in the United States. In November a record 2 million guns were sold in America.  This was followed up by another record in December.  2.7 million guns were sold in America in the last month of 2012…

I will pass over the fact that beginning with “In the four years” the paragraph is plagiarized from Kansas City Star reporter Tony Rizzo’s piece (linked in the Hoft original).

After all, when you’re a super-patriot protecting freedom, what’s a little theft of AP news articles acting as though the words were one’s own?

No: This is a sign of madness, a clear moment of societal psychosis.

Now, it’s just a caucus in D.C.

I’m serious: this gun mania and ammunition mania has NO RATIONAL BASIS, and if you think that 4.7 million new guns in the hands of irrational gun cultists is a good thing, you haven’t spent much time on Planet Earth.

This is worse than bad. It’s the prodrome condition to tragedy.

Take a look at the FBI statistics:

In 1999 (first full year) there were about 9 million background checks  and, UNTIL 2008, that figure shows no great increase. Then, when President Obama is elected, it not only spikes, but goes nuts in 2012. Here’s the plagiarized paragraph, with the important sentence left IN (Hoft removed it):

In the four years since Barack Obama was first elected president in November 2008, an estimated 67 million firearms have been purchased in the United States. That’s more than were sold in almost seven years before his first election…

And here’s the kicker, also from the plagiarized article:

Nationwide, more than 2.7 million of those checks were recorded for December, according to statistics kept by the FBI. Since late 1998 when federal law began mandating such checks for prospective gun buyers, the only other month that exceeded the 2 million mark was November 2012 — when Obama won a second term…

I’m not going to argue the clear linkage between President Obama’s elections and the spike in gun sales. If you don’t see it by now, see your optometrist.

There is NOTHING good that can come of this, and with gun nuts calling for killing people and a new civil war over this issue, this is a clear and present national danger.

But we have enough idiots, thankfully, that this will all be rationalized away — and, by “idiots” I mean “pundits” and “talking heads.”

Our Hate Makes us Great!™

Their cousins’ honeyed words assuring the German public that there was no ACTUAL danger from those National Socialists have long faded from public memory.

You need to be frightened, and you need to start looking for ways to take action, else paranoids with assault rifles … well, either you get it or you don’t.

But this is NOT THE SIGN OF A MATURE OR SOBER SOCIETY. It is the sign of a culture of toxic ignorance and black, evil stupidity so deeply entrenched that cutting out the cancer of its culture might well kill the patient (U.S.) being operated on. But the operation is required.

What ONE hollow-point from an assault rifle does to a coyote.
Hollow-points were used to kill the children at Sandy Hook, generally
with multiple shots at point-blank range.

The disease has metastasized.

Pray it won’t be your friends and family who suffer the consequences. Because if you give enough madmen enough guns, history tells us, the future is NOT rainbows and unicorns and rivers of Kool-Aid.

Try “Kill-Aid” which is the only thing that these impulse-buy weapons represent.

Bang bang.

  1. Is it IRONIC that the Ad at the top of the page is “Shoot the Watermelon”?

  2. Me either, never had a gun and never will. I cannot believe so many seemingly rational people (not the run of the mill gun nuts, but people I personally know to be sane) cannot see the correlation between the VERY genererous donations to the NRA by gun manufacturers and the propaganda spewed by the NRA. It’s not about the 2nd Amendment, it’s about (guess what?) MONEY. They are being played. Perhaps one day the realization will hit them and the weapons they cherish will be turned upon the NRA for their deception.

    Last night, on the local News (Atlanta) it was reported that many local police departments were running low on ammunition and could not find any readily available due to the FREAK-OUT gun & ammo purchases.

  3. It makes one consider purchasing a gun to protect oneself from the mildly insane babiez who are soiling their drawers over a gun confiscation that will never come under a Democrat (pop quiz, kids: where and when was the last gun confiscation action done, and what was the political alignment of the then-sitting President?), and then one pauses and sees, on that very witticism, the whispering of the wind of madness that makes all those severely troubled people buy too much ammunition to use on just the government that’s supposed to be coming after them for it … and then one says, ‘no, not me.’

    I’ve got a .177 caliber BB/Pellet rifle which I use to suggest to rabbits that my garden is not a good place to eat. A relatively low-power BB hitting a rabbit on the rump causes it to do a back flip — I think it’s an instinctive response to being grabbed by a predator. Aside from that, a gun is not needed because I’m not a hunter (except as described above) and I know that guns do not have any use for self-defense.
